Exterior Dead Flat Varnish is water resistant, abrasion resistant, and is formulated with the highest levels of UV absorbers and inhibitors to offer both interior and exterior protection for faux finishes and decorative painted surfaces. Exterior Dead Flat Varnish will remove undesirable variations in sheen created by using semi-gloss base coats with Decorative Glazes. Not recommended for use over Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection or Metal Effects Reactive Paints.

  • Brand
    Modern Masters
  • Size
    Quart, Gallon
  • Surface Preparation
    The faux finish or decorative painted surface must be fully cured prior to application (approximately 24 hours). If applying over porous surfaces, (such as stone or plaster finishes) dilute the Dead Flat Varnish 10% with water and apply in thin coats until the surface is sealed.
  • Application
    Exterior Dead Flat Varnish can be applied by brush, roller or spray equipment. Do not apply when air and surface temperature are below 50ºF (10ºC) or high humidity conditions exist. Optimal application conditions are 60ºF-80ºF (16ºC-27ºC) and 30%-60% relative humidity. For most applications thinning is unnecessary. Stir thoroughly before use. Do Not Shake.
  • Brushing
    Use a high-quality synthetic bristle brush.
  • Rolling
    Use a high-quality, soft short nap roller
  • Spraying
    Use a HVLP gun, conventional cup gun or airless spray system. If thinning is necessary, add up to 10% (3fl. oz./88.5 ml) of water per quart/946 ml of Exterior Dead Flat Varnish. For best results and maximum protection, a minimum of 2 coats is recommended. For interior surfaces, use Interior Dead Flat Varnish.
  • Dry Times
    Dry to touch in 30 minutes. Recoat time is approximately two hours. Full cure time is 12 hours. Note: Thicker film, temperature below 60ºF (16ºC) and relative humidity above 50% may cause slower dry times.
  • Coverage
    Approximately 350 to 450 sq. ft./Gal., 31.5-40.5m²/3.78 L.
